Slain SEALís dad wants answers: ĎDonít hide behind my sonís deathí (February 26, 2017)
Miami Hurled ^ | 3/1/17 | Julie K Browm

When they brought William “Ryan” Owens home, the Navy SEAL was carried from a C-17 military plane in a flag-draped casket, onto the tarmac at Dover Air Force Base, as President Donald Trump, his daughter, Ivanka, and Owens’ family paid their respects.

....“I’m sorry, I don’t want to see him,’’ Owens recalled telling the chaplain who informed him that Trump was on his way from Washington. “I told them I don’t want to meet the President.”

It had been little more than 24 hours since six officers in dress uniform knocked on the door to Owens’ home in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea....

...Owens cringed at the thought of having to shake the hand of the president who approved the raid in Yemen that claimed his son’s life — an operation that he and others are now calling into question.

One of the local Miami stations, the Fox station, is promoting a new interview with the dad. Just a new volley in the media's constant attack against Trump.

Here we go again - pure silence for the previous 8 years as hundreds of soldiers were killed and in some cases let to die like Benghazi and the lil emperor couldn’t be bothered to come out and see them.

But now the media cranks up the President don’t care bout the soldiers stories again.

This Father is a moron. Blaming Trump for the execution of the mission. What a jackass. His son was a Special Operator, they die on a regular basis, his son knew what he was signing up for when he went to BUDS. What a disgrace to his memory..

I would never begrudge a grieving father his feelings or opinions, even if I think he is wrong. I cannot possibly know or understand what he is going through.

John McCain on the other hand...

Hopefully he can get answers when the families of those left to die in Benghazi get truthful answers. They have waited much longer and been told terrible lies by Obama and Hillary.

My bad, the President’s Feb 2017 Speech before a Joint Session of Congress had the slain Seal’s wife present. The President’s heartfelt words to her regarding her husband’s heroism showed Americans what a true President is.

This father is likely hated by his own family. Internet reporters should chase his *ss down and get him on record as to why his own family can’t stand him.

I will not try to judge a parent in their grief.

But then, that is exactly what the article is asking us to do. They are asking us to learn something from examining how this man reacts to devastatingly painful news....and making it about mere politics.

Its sickening.

I guess he missed the story that likely people (read Obama minions) had leaked/tipped off the Yemenis that we were coming?

No it's not, the article is a year old and now in the trash bin of history.

It was discussed on this very website back then........

Some military personnel have to fight battles on the home front, too. It must be difficult to be torn between love of country, and love for a family that doesn’t share that love. I wonder if he knew they would carry their hate for America so far as to spit on his grave.

The POS media and a-hole libtards do EVERYTHING they can to bury Benghazi,Extortion 17,Bergdhal etc under the Kenyan administration. This is just a tired page from the Sheehan episodes.

Mr. Owens, I understand your bottomless grief as I have a live and healthy son of the same age.

But, he’s gone, and nothing, but nothing will bring him back.

So, are you doing what your son would want you to do...................i.e. being disrespectful of HIS Commander in Chief. I obviously did not know your son but I doubt he would approve your behavior from what I can see and read.
